My eldest daughter dressed up in her Can Can dance costume for the book character parade at primary school and instead of wearing and damaging her soft, black leather dancing shoes while walking on the concrete footpath into school, she packed them in a carry bag to change into once she arrived.
When she got to her classroom, one shoe was missing!
After retracing her steps and searching high and low during the next few days, Kiana still couldn’t find her missing black jazz shoe at home or at school.
Five days later she went to dance class wearing a spare pair of tan coloured jazz shoes. The next day she was due to have a stricter dance teacher and didn’t want to wear the wrong coloured shoes and get into trouble, so she wrote herself a note with the clear and definite intention of “FIND BLACK JAZZ SHOE” written on it.
She lovingly decorated the note that represented her heart’s desire in a HIGH VIBRATIONAL WAY with pretty flowers and colourful, swirly patterns on it, then placed it in her lunch box to remind her to check the lost property again at school.
As we prepared to leave home to drive to school, I had another look around our house but still couldn’t find the missing black jazz shoe.
And then I ‘got’ it …
Our family had been focusing on the confusion and mystery of the reality we were living by thinking and saying: “My dance shoe is lost, I can’t find the missing black jazz shoe, I don’t know where it is, it’s a mystery etc…” for 6 days now.
Of course our human senses (logical mind and physical body) hadn’t been able to locate the shoe because we were focusing on (thinking and speaking) the words: “confused, lost, missing and mystery” and so we were staying stuck in and continuing to live the reality of “confused, lost, missing and mystery.”
It was time to switch things around …
I knew that I had to take energetic action in the direction of my desire to find the missing black jazz shoe … I HAD TO PUT IN A CALL FOR UNIVERSAL ASSISTANCE!
And so I did.
I gave THANKS IN ADVANCE (acting “as if” we had found the jazz shoe, despite the reality that it was still missing) by thinking and then declaring the following intention out loud in a joyful, sing-song voice:
“THANK YOU FOR HELPING US FIND KIANA’S JAZZ SHOE!”
Then I surrendered my request to the universe.
I let my intention flow out from me. I let my deliberate creation declaration leave my body with the full faith and trust that my desire would be heard, answered and delivered.
After dropping my children at school, I didn’t think about the jazz shoe again for the rest of the day.
I went to pick my daughters up from school that afternoon and as I pulled off the road to park, I noticed an empty beer bottle lying in the gravel on the edge of the road. I slowed down to carefully maneuver my car around this piece of rubbish and as I did so, I noticed a black jazz shoe laying on the side of the road less than a metre away from me. I knew in my heart that this shoe would be ours but walked up to it to check for my daughter’s name inside and sure enough, that was it!
I HAD FOUND THE MISSING JAZZ SHOE!
We had parked in the same place on the busy morning of the book character parade and as I don’t usually park there in the mornings, I’d overlooked that detail. The black jazz shoe must have fallen out of Kiana’s bag 6 days earlier when she got out of the car.
The shoe had been sitting there, waiting for us the whole time, we just hadn’t known where to look!
Yet in the end, I didn’t need to logically know where to look because the missing black jazz shoe FOUND ME!
I use this story to remind my Law of Attraction students that your dreams are out there, waiting for you NOW.
You just need to be open and receptive enough to allow them to find you!
